    The Planetside 2 PS4 (US) servers will be coming down at 6am (PST) for an update. The approximate downtime is 3 hours and will require a client download. Additions and changes are listed below:

    Tank Handling
    • Reverted a change to the new tank handling mechanics that affected reverse steering, and maneuvering on certain slopes.
    IR Smoke (ANT, Flash, Harasser, Sunderer, Lightning, MBTs)
    • Has been renamed Smoke Screen.
    • Sunderer's Smoke Screen has been replaced with this ability.
    • Now emits smoke for 8 seconds at all ranks.
    • Cooldown from 30/25/20/15 seconds to 40/35/32/30 seconds.
    • Now immediately clears current spot markers for you and and allied vehicles within 30 meters.
    • Now prevents lock-on attempts for 8 seconds for you and allied vehicles within 30 meters.
    • Now masks the vehicle's minimap auto-spot signature for you and allied vehicles within 30 meters.
    Dev Note: Allowing IR Smoke to affect nearby vehicles increases its value in teamplay, and gives players additional incentive to choose an ability other than the current go-tos. It also allows for some niche strategies outside of teamplay, ie. disappearing behind cover and clearing your spot markers to help set up a flank or make an escape. The cooldown was increased to reduce spamability, while still remaining reasonably accessible.

    Misc. Additions and Adjustments
    • Freedom Thrusters have been disabled.
    • Koltyr should no longer count toward continent rotation, or spawn an additional ghost instance.
    • Up x 1
